Retirement is a great accomplishment and milestone for many people. One of the best ways to celebrate this achievement is by throwing a retirement farewell party. Regardless if the party is for a loved one, colleague, or yourself you’ll find that there are many options for planning the get-together. Welcome to this great collection of designs where you can find wonderful templates to create party invitations to gather your family and friends to celebrate a finish of a great adventure and a start of a well-deserved vacation.

Planning a Retirement Party

During the planning stage be sure to consider the retiree’s likes in terms of food, colors, theme, and even who is invited. Today’s retirement parties are much different from the bland ones thrown in the past that consisted of a cake and momenta from top executives. Some great party ideas include luncheons, sporting events, weekend galas, or even dinner and drinks at a local restaurant after work. The chosen theme should follow through to the decor, planned activities, and even the retirement party invitations. 

Retirement Party Invitations

In terms of party invitations, we have many designs to choose from. Regardless if the party is for a man or woman, there are many colors and themes available. The styles range from simple to elegant. Again, be sure to consider what the retiree likes whether it’s sailboats, flowers, western styles, or even just a simple color with writing - we have what you need! Our retirement party invitations are all fully customizable and created by professional designers or artists who work independently. 

Advantages of Personalized Invites

Personalizing retirement party invitations is a great idea as doing so allows you to be creative. It also allows you to add a personal touch that mass-produced store-bought or Etsy cards can’t offer. All of our retirement invitations can be tailored to suit your needs. You can customize them any way you want. You can alter the font, font size or color, upload photos, edit the background, or even move elements of the design around. This is all possible using our online editor that is free to use and does not require you to possess any skills in design or coding, similar to Canva. Once you’ve tailored the invitations to your liking you can either download them in JPG, PDF, or PNG format. You also have the option to order printed cards directly from us if you don’t have access to a printer. 

Retirement Party Invitation Etiquette

The invitation will set the tone for the retirement party, so be sure to thoughtfully word the card and write a meaningful message. This will inform guests if the party is a corporate-type affair or a more laid back atmosphere. Regardless of what type of event it will be, make sure you capture the personality of the retiree and provide all relevant details such as time, place, and appropriate attire.  

The guest list will be determined mainly by what type of event it will be. Will the party be for co-workers only? The alternative is to allow the retiree’s family and friends to also attend. This makes for a great time for the guest of honor as their children and grandchildren can hear stories of their accomplishments over the years.

As with most types of parties, it’s a great idea to send invitations out about 3 to 4 weeks before. This allows plenty of time for people to make arrangements to save the date. It’s also a good idea to request an RSVP to make it easier to plan food and activities in advance. Just remember, the party is to honor the retiree so there is no set of rules that you must follow when planning organizing the party. Just be sure you choose food, people, and activities you know the person likes!
